Welcome back to the another edition of the (Re)staking Synopsis, your go-to source for the latest in Ethereum staking, presented by Chorus One.

Cutting right to the chase: EigenLayer now holds the second spot in Total Value Locked (TVL) for a protocol, boasting over $12.8 billion USD (~3.6 million ETH) restaked. Impressively, nearly 2 million ETH has been natively restaked via EigenPods, marking a significant surge in restaking activity.

  1. MEV-Withdrawal Bug

MEV-Boost targets the highest bid for Ethereum block space. However, a glitch arises when blocks include withdrawals, distorting the MEV valuation and making some bids appear more valuable than they really are, leading to losses for proposers.

Beyond individual losses, this issue has wider implications for the Ethereum ecosystem, inflating proposers' profits, cutting down overall transactions and gas usage, and consequently, decreasing ETH burning.

Our research team analysed the full impact of this bug, originally published on ETHResearch.
